The Connection Browser dialog box
The Connection Browser dialog box, opened from the Streamline Data view, enables you to select a target without having to look up its name or IP address.
Figure 2-3 Connection Browser in Streamline
When you click the Browse for a target button in the Connection field of the Streamline Data view, Streamline searches your network and provides a selectable list of possible targets. The Connection Browser sorts the targets by type:
- Lists all DSTREAM
targets available on the network. If you select a DSTREAM unit
from this list, you must also specify the type of hardware the DSTREAM unit
is connected to, using the Target Type
Browser in the Capture &
Analysis Options dialog box.
NoteStreamline does not support all target types connected through a DSTREAM unit. The list that appears in the Target Type Browser is a list of all currently supported DSTREAM-connected targets.
- Streamline Agent
- Lists all targets connected directly to the network that have gator installed and running. These are the most common targets for Streamline. If you select one of these targets, the Target Type, shown in the Capture & Analysis Options dialog box, is set to Streamline Agent.
- Streamline Agent via ADB
- Lists all Android targets that have gator installed and running and are connected to the host using ADB. You must have installed ADB and specified its location in the Capture & Analysis Options dialog in order for this list to be populated.
Clicking the Setup Target... button opens a dialog that allows you to automatically set up Streamline on a rooted Android or Linux target. You can specify an ADB connection for an Android target, or the IP address, user name, and password for a Linux target connected using SSH.
Click Install to install and
start a pre-built user space gator which runs on Android or Linux and on ARMv7 or
gatord runs using the
-a flag, so that you can enter a command in the
Capture & Analysis Options dialog box
without having to restart it.
The Setup Target dialog allows
you to run a capture session without having to carry out the manual steps for
configuring and running
gatordmust run as root. If you are using ADB,
adbdalso must run as root.
gatordmight not start automatically on boot on all targets.
User space gator runs without the gator driver, gator.ko and does not support all Streamline features. For example, some counters might not be available. Kernel space gator provides a complete set of available features. To use it you must build gator.ko.
